    I've noticed while travelling or living abroad that demos tend to vary greatly in size depending on local culture. In Paris 100-200k happens on a regular basis, same thing in Brussels (proportionately). 500k happens once every 5 years, and we've been over a million five times in the past fifty years or so (though two of those were the Libération and the World Cup). On the other hand US and Australian demos tend to be really small (say, 25 people on the curb count as a demo). So how big are your typical London demos? Are the cops often violent?

    I hope it goes well and many people show up. Are you having "London Perl Mongers for Peace" pannels?
